Connections are at the heart of every bridge. It is their purpose – connecting one place or thing to another that otherwise would not meet. They allow us to go places we could not otherwise reach easily.

These connections require a large investment in thinking, planning and engineering. And then another investment in materials and construction. Shouldn’t they be built to last for a very, very long time? Shouldn’t they carry a low environmental impact and come into service faster?
Whether over land or water, as a highway overpass or on-ramp, or as a way to protect a natural area while still getting people where they need to go, we need context specific, accelerated construction of durable bridges that last for generations with fewer maintenance requirements. That’s our goal at Lafarge.

Extreme structural strength.
Nowhere is strength and durability more important than in a bridge’s substructure. Abutments, piers, footings and pilings are what hold the bridge up and provide the structural strength to elevate the spanning elements of the superstructure. Learn about our solutions for extreme durability.
Bring on the volume.
Bridge superstructures are constantly exposed to volume. Vehicular traffic, pedestrian traffic, extreme weather or snow loads -- it has to withstand it all, along with continuous heavy loads, chemical abuse, impact, corrosion, vandalism and even seismic events. Find out how we can help you select the right formulation.
